In France, the topic of femicides — the murder of a woman by a partner, ex-partner or family member — has gained a lot of media attention lately and initiated public protests. In 2018, 121 women were killed as a result of domestic violence. This dessert cake pays hommage to these women, with one pomegranate seed per murder. It is accompanied by A face cachée –– a three-layered mousse au chocolat illustrates the proportion of women killed by their spouses (dark chocolate), other family members (milk chocolate), or others (white chocolate). The added red and black pepper and curry make the dessert unbearable.
